A Tower Transit double-decker bus crashed into the roof of a shelter at a pickup point along Telok Blangah Road, opposite VivoCity today (July 31) at around 7.20am.

Stomper Busybody who was waiting for a shuttle bus at the pickup point, witnessed the accident.

According to Busybody, the service 97 bus seemed to be damaged after the collision.
